Q: How did you team up with Pionear?
A: I sent a 4-track demo to Germaican Records. Pionear liked it and sent me the Funeral-riddim (i.e. the aforementioned 'Typhoon') to voice a layout. So he could see what I could do on his riddim. He liked it and invited me to come to Leipzig and voice the riddim. That must have been in 2003 or something. That's how the work started.
Q: How important is it for you to have the opportunity to record combination tunes and do shows together with Bobby Buster instead of being your own, or is it just coincidence and fun as long as it lasts?
A: I see myself as a solo-artist basically. Still I enjoy the possibility to voice combination tunes with Bobby and also to team up on stage which was part of the Germaican Scout Project. But I also really want to develop as a solo-artist. Man haffi versatile, you know?
Q: "Aphrodite" as Terence 'ill over the one-off 'Zorba'-riddim is in my opinion one of the funniest non-Jamaican slackness tunes, any plans of becoming the 'German Vybz Kartel' as far as slackness is concerned?
A: Yo give tanks, you are one of very few people who really seemed to have listened to the lyrics, respect. I am defintely influenced by Vybz Kartel cau him a wicked artist and lyricist. I also always enjoy slackness tunes. But I would never try to become the German so and so. Firstly cause I is I and secondly me nah German you know. Europe a gwaan.
Q: Well, it's even better than that, not only Europe gwaan a Europe, but "Kriss Like This" has been released on Germaican Records JA. Does that spark any hopes of conquering the Jamaican dancehalls, especially since you have these great 'Germaican'-riddims as a backing available, featuring numerous Jamaican
A: It would be a great honour for me if JA Sounds would play my tunes of course. And I am proud to have me likkle release ova deh so too. Still, we are mainly aiming at Europe at the moment.
Q: I've seen you and Bobby Buster perform at Germaican Link Up! 2004, and was impressed by the show back then, how have reactions on the Germaican Scout Roadshow this year been?
A: Give tanx, happy you enjoyed the show. All the reactions on the tour have been very good. We always give 110% minimum.
Q: Time for my final question already, is there an album release in the can?
A: Watch out fi a likkle suppn in fall...
Thanks Inspecta for taking the time for this interview, hope you'll keep making tunes like what we've heard so far from you for us to enjoy, and we'll keep hearing from you!
